It's not exactly the Mayo Clinic
RANTHAMBORE, India — The operating rooms are dark and gloomy, the power outages far too frequent; the layout is chaotic, and the recruitment of good doctors difficult. Running a rural hospital in India is a labor of love marked by shortages, budget deficits and stiff competition from witch doctors and superstition — a tiny slice of the challenge India faces as it tries to lift hundreds of millions of people out of poverty. The hospital is at the end of a steep, bad road beside Ranthambore National Park, one of India's most famous tiger reserves. The park attracts tourists from around the world, visibility that also helps bring in the occasional donation to Sevika.
